Holmes Institute was founded in 1963 and has campuses in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Cairns. It’s a fact of life, without a professional understanding of your chosen field, you’re only relying on luck – and that’s a life gamble you just can’t afford. Determination in achieving your goals and professional training are the ingredients of success in today’s complex business world. You will succeed with a sound training in the fundamentals – and a firm belief in your abilities.
The Holmes philosophy of education and training focuses on a balance between theory and practice, as over 34,000 business graduates since 1963 can testify. With smaller classes, an alternative pathway to an Australian University, the recognition of a business Certificate or Diploma qualification, the opportunity to study in an Australian corporate environment, career assistance, all make the Holmes Institute choice integral to your education and skills training. Means of delivery Small lectures are the principal means by which course material is delivered. Most classes are conducted in an interactive fashion. Students are expected to ask questions and actively contribute to class discussions. A student needs to be an active member of the class rather than a passive member.
It is Holmes’ policy to monitor and record course progress of each student for the course in which they are currently enrolled. Holmes will monitor progress and assist students to meet their study goals throughout their course. Attendance, participation and contribution are vital and necessary parts of your study period at Holmes.
